I have played the Original games on PS2 and the games are fun to play thought but the movie is a bit dull to be honest.

Angelina Jolie is perfectly cast in a kind of female Indiana Jones movie based on a videogame. The action sequence in the mansion is fantastic but the story is typically half-arsed and the romance with Daniel Craig (who is awful) is wholly unconvincing.

Average action flick. Not as bad as most video game movies.

A female version of Indiana Jones with a touch of Aeon Flux. The action was evidently present, stunts were nice and it was visually delightful. The film overall needed to become more interesting despite Jolie's impressive display.

Indiana Jolie and the Turkey of 2001

Who was not embarrassed leaving the movie theater in the summer of 2001 after watching this movie? Lara Croft: Tomb Raider had a lot going for it. Aside from Angelina Jolie's premarital attractiveness and physical fitness perfectly matching the character, the movie seemed like the female equivalent of Indiana Jones. It didn't have to reinvent the wheel but I'll be damned if the movie didn't end up appearing as though it could barely walk.
The action choreography is atrocious, the editing is messy, the characters are all one-dimensional pieces of cardboard, and the story makes no sense whatsoever. Perhaps this should not be surprising since video game movies were as dangerous a gamble back in 2001 as they are today. Why so risky? Well because they tended to suck whether it be Super Mario...
